Subject: RE: Folklore: Shrove Tuesday, Mardi Gras, Pancake
I thought the ingredients of pancakes are avoided during Lent so they are used up as they won't keep. We had a morris tour of pancake establishments many years ago in Sydney but I couldn't convince Pancakes on the Rocks that there was a Pancake Day! Unlike Brisbane where it was a major event with city streets closed (Is it still so?)
